Year 6 to Year 7 Transition
Boreatton Park (PGL) 8-10th November
Between 8-10th November we have arranged for our Year 7 pupils to attend a three day residential trip to Boreatton Park in Shrewsbury.
The trip plays an important part in the start of your child’s time at Our Lady’s enabling them to form new friendships that will be invaluable to them as they progress through school life. Due to the importance of this trip in pupils’ school lives the cost of the trip is free and includes all meals during the 3 days.
The trip to Boreatton Park will offer your child a chance to try out a range of adventurous activities in a beautiful setting.
